The newly elected governor of the northeastern Mexican state of Tamaulipas, Francisco Javier García Cabeza de Vaca, has been spending a lot of time on the northern side of his border with the United States. Even before being elected in June, he visited San Antonio to propose a new trade office. Afterwards, he stopped by Mission, Brownsville, and Laredo. Tuesday, he came to Houston, for meetings with Mayor Sylvester Turner and journalists at the Houston Chronicle.
Why spend so much time outside the place that elected him, in the crucial transition months before he takes office on October 1?
